BeLoved Asheville – Our Story
We believe in the perspective that we gain when we know that we are loved and we see others as equally loved. That is the knowledge of our belovedness. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. calls the place where there is no longer the oppressed and the oppressor but each are reconciled to each other–“the beloved community.”
When we know we are loved, we gain the insight and energy needed to accept ourselves and grow in positive ways. We develop the compassion and creativity to make a difference in the world. We develop mutual care for each other and come together in our diversity to create a better community for ALL!

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
